If you really like the aesthetics of swimming pool but you're not such a big fan of the whole being submerged in water part, there is finally a pool for you. Meet Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich's exhibit at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan. It looks like a regular pool, but that's actually just a thin layer of water on top of a sheet of glass, which means that visitors can go inside and technically be under water without having to change into special clothes.

Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich created an illusory swimming pool that seems to be filled with water. Installed as a permanent exhibit at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan, the water in the pool is actually only 4 inches deep, supported by a thick layer of transparent glass.

Underneath is an aqua room that viewers can enter, inviting a shared experience of wonder at the constructed space both from above and below.

In his work, Buenos Aires-based Erlich plays with perception and assumption in an exploration of “the ways we understand phenomena, enter into relationships with spaces, and grasp reality.”
